Cards Inspiration with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes readers, Alicia here today with a card I made using 3 different Quick Quotes collections: 49 Shades of Grey, Whistlin' Dixie, and Anchors Aweigh. All of the new collections are so complimentary. I created this card after the Paris attacks and wanted to express my mourning for the pain and loss. I cut the Eiffel Tower in the darkest shade of 49 Shades of Grey. I layered it slightly off center from the embossed Eiffel Tower.

I used the Prima button to choose the other colors for the card. The embossing folder had a harlequin design on the side which I tore off and layered Anchors Aweigh 100 Paper stamped with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink and a harlequin stamp. I added a die cut layer behind the button to make it pop and lots of black flowers and bling. I heavily distressed the embossed layer with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink making sure to hit the word Paris to make it stand out.

Creating a card didn't help France but it did help me digest and reflect on the tragedies and express my sympathy to the people of France. My heart and thoughts are with them during this scary time.

November Club Q with Donna!

Since the Thanksgiving holiday season is here it is a great time to reflect on all the things we have to be thankful, and one of the many things I am thankful for is family, especially my grandchildren. They are a constant reminder that I am so lucky for what I have! 

This months kit includes some really nice quotes made from chipboard. I used the Thankful for this life and blotted it with Java Powderpuff ink. The kit also included the pearl brads, canvas, buttons and die cut leaves, plus so much more.

Here is a closeup of the flower cluster. I like to mix textures, here I used die cut leaves, flowers, bling, canvas and off to the right some kind of fall foliage that fell off my autumn wreath. I have to admit I am a scrapbook hoarder and anything I think I can use later, I save!

Happy Birthday Card with Martha

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a Happy Birthday Card using a mix of papers. Sometimes when I receive or buy a new material I forgot the "older" and it's like forgot my favorites things. So when I clean my room and desktop, I always rediscover a lot of things.

Birthday Card

In today's card I am using the Whistlin' Dixie 109 as base for my decorations. Then I cut a banner in Anchors Aweigh 105 and I started by cutting a star using the Celebrate 400 that I inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Buttercup as part of my details. The others are a few balloons that I cut using the die cuts called Balloons Die from Avery Elle with Celebrate 100, Celebrate 400 and Catalina Island 400 papers.
  Birthday Card

As a final touch I added a button with a bow and a few aqua sequins and I stamped a Spanish sentiment using the Baja Blue PowderPuff Chalk Ink. And voila the card is finished!

You are the Good Stuff with Alicia

Good day Quick Quotes readers! Alicia with you today doing a simple boy layout.

This a rare picture of my child these days, he hates having his picture taken, so I really wanted that to be the focus. It was also a night time picture so I thought Quick Quotes 49 Shades of Grey collection was a great compliment to the photo.

I had a stock pile of wood veneer shapes that took the Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking inks so well! I was amazed at how bright the Red Hot PowderPuff Chalking Ink and dark the Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink turned out on the wood.

I love how the chipboard and card stock stickers provide so many choices for matching accents to a page. Some gems and doodles, elevate a few elements with paper layers and pop dots and all done!

November Club Q with Donna

Hi Donna here today and I would like to introduce to you this months Club Q Kit from Quick Quotes.


This kit is fantastic, all it makes me want to dive in and do tons of winter layouts! You can use the instructions from the kit, but I like to take the kit all apart and go from there. That is what is so great with this kits, if your not feeling blocked creatively but want to scrap you can still do that with the instructions provides, but if your feeling adventurous go ahead and do your own thing.

I don't know about you, but when I see an evergreen tree, I just want to decorate it! I used  a string of pearls from the kit and the fiber from the kit. 
Another idea to make it more winter like, is to add a little bit of glitter to the snowflakes and title. I used ultra fine glitter and how I did this was by spreading a little bit of tacky over the chipboard and snowflakes and then sprinkle the glitter of them. Press down gently and shake the excess off. Be sure to do this in a tray or something that you scoop up the excess and reuse it. I also used the pearls from the kit and the pearl brads to dress up my snowflakes.
Products Used:
Other Products: Ultra Fine glitter

Border Paper Ideas with Connie

Hi, Connie here to show you what you can make with one sheet of Anchor's Aweigh border paper.

This is a easy project, especially when you have cute sea shells in the right place on the border paper~makes it so easy to make these tags.

#1. Use Anchor's Aweigh border paper 101 by Quick Quotes.
#2. Cut the center out of the paper. Starting with the Blue stripe and then cut under the Orange stripe.
#3. Score above the sea shell border and then below.
#4. Fold one side only under. Leave a small piece of paper on the fold. That is what will make the tag. 
#5.  Cut the rest of the 2 large sea shells.

#6. Turn under the other side of the border strip and do the same thing only on the smaller sea shells.
#7. Use a clip to keep the paper together.
#8. You should have 6 small sea shell gift tags.
Plus you have borders left on the sheet of paper~

Always a use for them !!!!
